The Acer Iconia Tab 7, one of two new budget Android tablets from Acer: it's a little fancier than the Iconia One 7.

The Tab 7 has built-in 3G for making phone calls or connecting online, but I'm not sure I'd use it that way.

The Tab 7 from the side. It has an aluminum back.

A rear 5-megapixel camera sits in a more centered, smartphone-like orientation. That just encourages tablet photography.

There's a Micro SD card slot for expansion, along with 8 or 16GB of built-in storage.

The IPS display, however, still only has 1200x800 resolution.

The price in Europe will be around 149 Euros, but there's no U.S. price yet.

The bezel around the display is pretty hefty.
